Ontario legislature affirms religious expression

Catholic World News - September 25, 2013

As Quebec lawmakers consider a “Charter of Quebec Values” that would ban the wearing of most religious garb by doctors, teachers, and other public employees, the Ontario legislature has unanimously passed a resolution affirming religious freedom, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

According to the text of the resolution, “the Government of Ontario should oppose any legislation that would restrict or prohibit people's freedom of expression and religion in public places and affirm that Ontario greatly values our diverse population and the social, cultural and economic contributions they make to help our society thrive.”
